Filled with details on everything from the 1.4 FC P-Tower to the Zygerrian Slave Empire, there are over 2,500 images with all kinds of interesting details. Did you know there was a Hutt named Mama? Or that there’s an in-universe toy of Boba Fett’s airspeeder model?

In addition to minutiae that will intrigue the most passionate of fans, The Visual Encyclopedia details the planets, people, weapons, cultures, politics, vehicles and more from the Star Wars universe. It’s a cornucopia of facts and images that you’ll be able to pour over for hours.

As ILM’s senior creative director Dennis Muren writes in his foreword, “This book is a celebration of those details that exist in the service of storytelling…All of these pieces together fill out the Star Wars universe visually and emotionally, helping generations of moviegoers feel they are a part of this story from ‘a galaxy far, far away.'”
